Yard Debris


Year Round, York County residents have the opportunity to schedule a special yard debris collection for items such as limbs, branches, and clear bags of natural yard waste by calling 890-3780 or through our online CUSTOMER SERVICE program.

Curbside Yard Debris Collections

      • Acceptable material size for curbside pickup is 8” diameter and 10’ feet in length.
      • All residents who subscribe to the York County curbside solid waste program may schedule two yard debris collections per month (approx. 24 cubic yards) at a rate of $25 per collection. Each additional load collected within 30 days after the first collection will be an additional $100 per load. Non subscribers to the solid waste program may schedule up to two collections within a 30 day period at a rate of $75 per collection.
      • Loose yard debris, grass, leaves and straw must be placed in clear bags.
      • Stumps, dirt or debris with dirt, construction debris, and other materials CANNOT be collected.
      • Scheduled materials must be at the front roadside by 7:00 a.m. Monday of your collection week.


      • The VPPSA COMPOST FACILITY will accept residential and commercial yard debris deliveries of material up to a 24” diameter and 10’ length.
      • ALL LANDSCAPE CONTRACTORS and residents who do not subscribe to the York County curbside solid waste program who bring yard waste to VPPSA’s COMPOST FACILITY will be charged a tipping fee of $38 per ton (prorated).
      • Landscape contractors living in York County who wish to deliver materials collected from their personal residences must contact the York County Waste Management Center at 890-3780 at least one week in advance to allow staff to inspect the material to be delivered while still on the grounds of the residence. This is required to ensure that the materials being brought to the composting facility are in fact residential and not commercial in nature.
